A NEW dating show will see an array of beautiful women compete for the attention of a handsome stranger – but there’s a dramatic catch.
The Love Trap will see eight women competing against each other to win a coveted £20,000 cash prize if they can seduce 34-year-old personal trainer David Birtwistle, however, only half of them are single.

In what will make hard viewing for their partners at home, some of the Love Traps are even engaged, but they do not hold back when trying to convince David that they are for real.
In the eagerly anticipated first episode tonight, they flirt outrageously, with one telling him she wants to join him in bed, teasing: “I felt bad for you being on your own.”
More rivals join in the second episode as they take extra steps to win his affections in the “chemistry test”, each cuddling him affectionately in bed.
Even host Joel Dommett, as well as the producers, were stunned at how physical the women got with David – with some even rubbing his bare chest, licking his neck and nibbling his earlobe.
Joel, who fronts The Masked Singer, said he would be “absolutely livid” if he was one of the boyfriends watching at home.
He said: “We didn’t really think anything like a kiss, or even further was going to happen. My Lord, were we very wrong, they really went in.

“They must have had a conversation with their boyfriends at home and gone like, ‘let’s win this 20 grand, you’ve got to not be offended by this. I’m going to kiss him, I’m going to do this, I’m going to do that’.
“And fair play, they really did – because a lot of the time we were like, ‘that person can’t have a boyfriend because if I was that boyfriend, I would be absolutely livid right now’.”
For those that are unlucky enough to be rejected by David, they are shockingly dropped through a trapdoor.
Ironically, just like in The Masked Singer, Joel is kept in the dark about contestants, so he does not know which are single and which are faking it.
Viewers may recognise singleton David from Netflix’s hit series Too Hot to Handle.
The hunk didn’t manage to find love on that show, but affirmed that he’s hoping to find the lady of his dreams now.
“She has to be outgoing, and fun, and bubbly – I want a best friend, as well as a partner,” he said.
“And someone who’s driven, that they want to achieve in their life, and they want to go places.”
